Blackheath Prep is committed to supporting charitable endeavours. We actively encourage our pupils to think about their local community and the world at large. We help them to develop an appreciation of the advantages they have and an understanding of and empathy for those who may not be as fortunate. We also encourage support from our parents.

Throughout the year, we host a wide range of pupil-led fundraising and charitable initiatives in school, including Christmas jumper days, sponsored events and donations of second-hand sports kits and uniform to schools overseas. The PTFA also raises money for a variety of charities and makes regular uniform donations to two schools in Zimbabwe.

Local Charities
At Blackheath Prep, we place great value on supporting smaller charities in our local area and building ongoing partnerships with them.

We support Deptford-based 999 Club’s work with the homeless through a range of activities, including donating food from our harvest festival and raising money to fund new sleeping bags through our Christmas jumper day.

We also regularly support Bexley Food Bank, Richard House and Charlton Toy Library.
